The origin/habitat information below is supplied courtesy of Charles and Margaret Baker

The following information is based on the name of the plant provided by the donor, and assumes that the name is correct. If the plant has been misidentified, then the following information may not be correct.

ORIGIN/HABITAT: Brazil. This orchid was discovered originally in the Serra do Mar in the state of São Paulo. Pabst and Dungs (1975) reported that it is now known to occur in the states of Minas Gerais, Espírito Santo, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Paraná, Santa Catarina, and Rio Grande do Sul. Plants grow in the hot, humid lowlands along the coast, in marshy areas of the interior, in the cool, moist mountains near the coast, and in colder regions with rigorous winters. Tomlinson undated (1986?), however, reported that these plants require cool, moist conditions. We have estimated the habitat elevation to provide these conditions, but growers should use the resulting climate table and cultural suggestions with caution.
